The album, the singer’s sixth, is set for release on Friday (November 10) and is the star’s first record since 2014’s ‘1989‘.
As Stereogum reported last night (November 7), physical CDs have begun to be shipped out to stores around the world in preparation for the record’s release, with photos of its cover and alleged tracklisting have appeared online.
The back cover of the CDs revealed a collaboration with Ed Sheeran and Future called ‘End Game’, while other tracks on the record apparently include ‘Don’t Blame Me’, ‘This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things’ and ‘I Did Something Bad’. Producers credited on the CD include Jack Antonoff, Max Martin, Shellback and Swift herself.
Now, Swift has confirmed the tracklist, posting the official artwork on her Instagram page. Check it out below.
The ‘Reputation’ tracklist is as follows:
‘…Ready For It?’
‘End Game’ (feat. Ed Sheeran and Future)
‘I Did Something Bad’
‘Don’t Blame Me’
‘Look What You Made Me Do’
‘So It Goes…’
‘King Of My Heart’
‘Dancing With Our Hands Tied’
‘This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things’
‘Call It What You Want’
‘New Year’s Day’
Meanwhile, Swift has allegedly threatened to sue a blog that compared her to Hitler and drew connections between the singer’s music and the alt-right.
Culture and politics blog PopFront published a post titled ‘Swiftly to the alt-right: Taylor subtly gets the lower case kkk in formation’ in September. The blog post dissected the lyrics of Swift’s recent single ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ and its music video, suggesting that they were “a defence of white privilege and white anger”.
Following the blog post, editor Meghan Herning says she received a letter from Swift’s legal team, demanding that PopFront “immediately issue a retraction of a provably false and defamatory story about Ms Swift, as well as remove the story from all sources and cease and desist from publishing or disseminating it”.
